  1. Distracting windscreen reflection from HUD?

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    Hi all! This 2019 is the first car I've had with a HUD, which I love! However... every now and again the sun is at whatever angle, I find I get really distracting reflection onto the windscreen - a square round what I presume is where the HUD projects from. Anyone else finding this? And...
  2. Lane Depart Graphic In HUD

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    For those with the HUD, do you see the lane departure warning graphic in your HUD? The manual says it should show it and also saw a video that shows it but mine will only show in the instrument cluster screen. Not a big deal but I’m wondering if my system is glitching....

    Hi, All :) I am the owner of Mazda 3/2014. I have the opportunity to buy a used HUD display along with the cover. What is needed for the assembly. Is it enough to plug and play? Can I use HUD after 2017 lifting. Thank you for your support
  4. ADD HUD glass bit

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Hi all, Does anyone know how to remove the glass/plastic bit from the HUD? Does it just pull out or do I need to remove the entire thing? I have a crack in mine and have a new glass/plastic bit but just not sure how to swap them over? Thanks
  5. Mod HUD to project on windshield

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Has anyone considered modifying the HUD to project on the windshield, rather than the flip-up plastic? (Active Driving Display). I think this would be something like removing the plastic, and adding a piece of polarized film the the windshield. I don't quite have it figured out, but starting...

    My Mazda 3 14 SGT HUD(Mono, not the color one since 2017) becomes so dim suddenly. 1. I installed official AA/CP kit a month ago myself, all went well and drove for a month without any problem. Then I went on vacation for a month. Last night I came back and drove for a while, battery, MZD...

    Just replaced the HUD from combiner to windshield projection type on my CX5 GT. Everything works fine except the severe ghost image issue which is really annoying (see photo as below) Does anyone know tricks or tips such as adding washer at the button of HUD module to fine-tune projection...
  10. Trying to upgrade Combiner type of HUD to Window Screen projection for my CX5

    I can find all necessary parts from www.mazdapartworld.com except one of parts. called Upper Cover (KB8E5541XA). Unfortunately I Google entire Internet and what I got is no longer available or discontinued. I just cannot understand why only this part is missing while its replacement or...
  11. New use for HUD

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Nothing groundbreaking here, but I didn't think of it until now so surely some others could benefit. I like to watch the odd YouTube video in my car at lunch. Normally don't have a good spot for phone. If you place the phone on the dash, face up, adjacent to your HUD, you can just watch the...

  13. Mazda 3 HUD sign question

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    On the HUD if there's a car on your blind spot, you can see like a wave symbol in white colour displayed. Sometimes this blinks and turns amber in colour. What does that mean?
  14. HUD missing Turn by Turn GPS

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Originally purchased my Mazda 3 in 2014. At the time it had the Turn by Turn Directions displaying in the HUD. Loved that feature. Some year after they did an update and it was no longer displaying when I set a destination. I read somewhere there may be a bug? But I was wondering if anyone else...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hi, I recently bought a new Mazda 3, model 2017. There is a new color HUD but it shows only speed and no traffic signs and navigation arrows as promised. Is there a software bug or something else? Firmware version is 59 00 443 EU. How does traffic signs recognition work anyway? On windshield is...
  16. Swapping HUD to Color Display

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv How-To Guides
    I may be asking this well before anyone can answer this, but I'll ask any way: would we be able to swap/upgrade to the colored HUD from the 2017 Mazda3s? I'm assuming this may be more than just swapping out the display itself since there are new graphics/features, but I would like to be sure...

  18. Messed up HUD surface

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    When walking up to my car today I noticed that the HUD glass looked kind of oily or something. I have never had any liquids even close to the HUD so I was a bit baffled. Upper edge and right side facing me when up turns out to be matte/coarse. Like if the plastic had been in contact with...
